Her new periwinkle coat dress by Alexander McQueen is similar in style to several pieces she already owns and features a wide, open collar, built-in belt and full skirt with box pleats.

Middleton, 40, topped off her elegant updo with another fresh piece, wearing a blue fascinator topped with tonal flowers by Juliette Botterill Millinery ($681).

Looking stunning in a long, tiered white gown under her traditional velvet robe and plumed hat, Bowles walked alongside her husband, Prince Charles, who is also a knight of the order.

As for the Duchess of Cambridge, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the royal in a blue coat in recent months; she also wore a similar Catherine Walker dress at the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March.

The duchess looked patriotic in blue-and-white as she laughed with local residents at a London street party for the Jubilee.

And, blue is certainly a prominent color in the royal’s closet, as evidenced by the coordinated theme at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee earlier this month, where Middleton kicked off the celebrations in a navy fascinator and, a few days later, debuted a polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich to attend a street party.
